Would any of us want to have a diet of strictly baby food?  In spiritual terms this is what Paul is telling the Corinthians that they are still doing.  “But I, brothers, could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ.  I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready,  for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?” (1 Corinthians 3:1)  We will all have setbacks, but our goal should be for our spiritual life to continue to grow every day that we live.  “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)
